(Waridaad)-Jerome Robert Corsi (born August 31, 1946) is a conservative author, conspiracy theorist, one of those doctors who absolutely insists you call him “Doctor” even though he doesn’t practice medicine, and a dick.
Jerome Corsi has made a very nice living out of forwarding ideas that are blatantly false. These include, but are not limited to: Muslims practice mosque-sanctioned man-boy love; John Kerry is Jewish (when he’s about as WASPY as they come—just take a look at those photos of him skiing); Barack Obama deals drugs out of his Senate office; and Hillary Clinton is a lesbian. Wait a minute. Scratch that last one.
His most influential books are Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry and The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality. He has also written such works as Black Gold Stranglehold: The Myth of Scarcity and the Politics of Oil; Showdown with Nuclear Iran: Radical Islam’s Messianic Mission to Destroy Israel and Cripple the United States; and Book Titles: The Longer They Are, the Wackier the Content Contained Therein.
Despite the fact that he’s the kind of writer you’d expect to find strictly on the self-publishing circuit, Jerome Corsi is a New York Times #1 bestselling author. But then again, so is Duane “The Rock” Johnson.
On October 7, 2008, Corsi was detained by Kenyan immigration officers after attempting to stage an Obama Nation book launch at a Nairobi hotel. Initially it was believed that Corsi was being held on a “work visa technicality,” but in a bizarre twist, the Kenyan government actually said outright that they didn’t care for his ideas, foregoing the time-honored tradition of making up fake reasons to strong-arm people. Corsi was deported shortly thereafter, yet another bizarre twist, in that an American agitator was deported from a foreign country, rather than the other way around.
